Pumpkins have both male and female flowers on the same plant. Male flowers will open first and the female flowers will open later. The female flower has a miniature fruit behind the blossom. If you are trying to grow extra-large pumpkins, allow only one fruit per plant to mature.

Pumpkins are ready to harvest when the rinds are hard and a rich shade of orange or white depending on the variety. If a light frost kills the vines, the pumpkins are ready to harvest. Pumpkins are damaged by heavy frost. Cut pumpkins from the vine with a pruning shears, leaving about 3 inches of stem attached. Allow the pumpkins to cure in the sun for a week to harden skin.
